I read a review of the shot show and they mentioned it, but no website listing or company info.

it's a gun mat made of kevlar to point your pistol at when loading, unloading and chamber checks.

Anyone have a link or own one?

Sounds like a great idea to have one around.

thanks

Chris

Never heard of it. I didn’t make the last Shot Show, but my 2003 directory doesn’t list them.

I use an old Kevlar 1’ square test panel myself. Vest manufacturers supply these to LEO agencies for test firing when the agency is evaluating that manufacturer’s armor. (I used to do that.)

However, AFAIK, manufacturers don’t sell test panels.

Actually, you could buy the Kevlar and make one for yourself (just use sharp scissors, preferably ceramic).

Alternatively, buy an old Kevlar vest off e-bay and use it. Just don’t get a female vest – the front panel won’t lay flat!

LEO agencies are forever surplusing body armor, but they’re generally pretty careful about where it goes.

A 5 gallon bucket of sand isn't glamorous enough for you?

just seemed like a good idea to me.
I'll check the local leos maybe they'll understand and have pity and see if they have an old one , if not ebay .
thanks again
